Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's really worth visiting as the events the museum talks about happened on the site of the museum, which is the old front line between Finland & USSR in the Winter War & Continuation war. You can walk the ground and see the places and read about what happened and that's a really cool thing.

They have a lot of artifacts that were dug up on the site and a few others from nearby plus so re-created bunkers and trenches as well as a planned walk through the old front line, whose trenches and border markings are still visible.

If I could add one thing it would be a high level overview of the situation the museum talks about from 1940 to 1944 and what was happening when. I went with a non-Finn and they were often saying "oh, so this happened to cause that! Why didn't they say that earlier". All Finns know this history but many foreigners do not.

Informative exhibition telling history of Hanko as Soviet Naval Base during 1940-41. Also a War Path behind the building. Also good coffee and doughnuts!

Hangon Rintamamuseo (Hanko Front Museum, Hangö Frontmuseum) is located on an authentic wartime Finnish-Soviet front line outside the city of Hanko. You find a museum building, an artillery hall and a one-kilometer long War Path there. They also have a stunt track for children and a very small cafeteria. In summer the museum is open every day. The museum is extremely interesting and they have all texts in English, too.

The museum also has another sight, which is situated in Skogby/Harparskog (address Mannerheimintie 57, Raasepori) 5.4 kilometers from this main museum. It is called Bunkkerimuseo or Bunkermuseum Irma. It is open only on summer weekends. However, this authentic and restored bunker is extremely interesting. They even have a sound show in the bunker. I highly recommend visiting Bunker Irma, too.

The museum is situated on the front line of the Finnish-Soviet Continuation War on Hankoniemi Cape. It offers information and exploring options both indoors and outdoors. I recommend visiting both areas. The old material is well presented. Our boys (ages 9 and 11) enjoyed the visit. The outdoor walking path offers children even their own “self-guided tour”. Just grab the leaflet from the cafe.
Cafeteria offered nice treats as well so it is worth to visit also just for a cup of coffee and “munkki” or other delicacies.

The museum has been refurbished and now you can follow a logically built story about what happened in the Hanko area during the II world war. I learned a lot, as everone seem to be forgetting this south-west front when talking about world war II.
